Can you guys please tell me what do you think of the motability scheme?
I have the Higher rate of disability living allowance and I am thinking of getting a car with this through the scheme. I give them the £180 a week I get from the alllowance (it will go directly to them from the goverment) In return I get a brand new car every 3 years. On some cars you have to put down a deposit some of them you can get with no deposit at all. The insurance, service, breakdown cover and the road tax is free. (road tax would be free anyway for a person getting the allowance)
Basically the allowance will amount to about £7000 in 3 years which technically goes on renting a brand new car, but with extras that are included I will save on insurance, etc. I have a 5 year old car which if fine, but I will want to change it within the next 2 years, for a safer car as I have kids so would have to spend money anyway. On this scheme I can get Ford S Max or Honda CR-V if I put down about 3K which my car is worth anyway right now.
What would you do?
